Fairs and Festivals In Park City Utah - Summer 2023

You can’t miss these festivals and fairs in and around Park City for Summer 2023!

The Wasatch Back is renowned for having something happening all the time and all summer long. This year is no exception. Here’s a few tried and true events you don’t want to miss.

June – October
Look forward to every Wednesday, 11 am – 5 pm at Canyons Park City. Kamas Valley baker, Volker, is the true heart behind this successful market. Filled with music, friends, and fun, this is the go-to market for locals to find fresh organic goods from Utah farmers and vendors.
At the market, you can enjoy ready-to-eat festival fare. Sample Utah-made honey, jam and ice cream. Savor Volker’s delicious bread and pick up everything you need to make dinner for the rest of the week.

June – August and beyond
Mountain Town Music (MTM) is a local staple and keeps the Wasatch Back tapping their toes, dancing, and singing along several times a week.
Visit mountaintownmusic.org to plan your season of song. Since 2001, MTM has provided community concerts from Pinebrook to Main Street and from Kamas to Canyons Village.

June 30th – July 4th
(no events on Sunday, July 2nd)
Every year, the stands at the Oakley Rodeo grounds fill with fans for this Summit County staple. This year marks the 88th anniversary of the Oakley Rodeo and Independence Day Celebration.
Concessions and food trucks are available for attendees. Evenings conclude with a spectacular fireworks show. Fair warning: space is limited and fills up quickly!

September 1st – September 2nd
Guests fall in love with the small town feel of Midway’s annual Swiss Days. Enjoy traditional fair food with a Swiss German twist and an outdoor craft market with local and national vendors. There’s even a traditional parade Saturday at 10 am and live musical entertainment throughout each day.
Plan ahead for the Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog Competition and Festival returning over Labor Day in 2024. The Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation will be completing its upgrades to the Soldier Hollow Nordic Center in 2023.

September 4th
Most communities end the summer season by celebrating Labor Day. In Park City, we honor our rich mining heritage and celebrate Miner’s Day. Organized by Park City’s Rotary Club, the day starts with a 5K race. Next is the traditional “Running of the Balls,” a cause-based event benefiting local nonprofit organizations. Participants buy tennis balls that are released to “run” down Main Street.

The parade featuring local organizations, the high school marching band, and political candidates, runs down Main Street to City Park with music, food, and mucking and drilling competitions. Demonstrations of how the miners drilled and moved the muck are free and open to the public. Regional musical groups play on the bandstand. Locals love Miner’s Day as it is a true small town celebration.

September 7th – September 9th
Designed to be an environment for musicians to learn and share their passion for music with each other, their fans, and the music community, Park City’s Song Summit is a tiny treasure of an event in the early fall. During the Song Summit, musicians gather to “inform, reset, and recharge” their songwriting process. This event grows every year and combines world-class and local performers with a true spirit of camaraderie and creativity.

October 5th – October 7th
Utah’s premier wine festival, the Park City Wine Festival, returns in early October this year. Enjoy the cooler temperatures of fall and the bright colors of the changing leaves while sipping wines from the finest vintners in the world. Offering a variety of experiences on the mountain, in restaurants, classrooms, and around town, the Park City Wine Festival helps enrich your understanding of food and wine while experiencing the town of Park City at its best. (Remember to bring a valid photo ID to events.) Plan to attend the Grand Tasting at Canyons Village on Friday, October 6th and Saturday, October, 7th. For a more exclusive experience, The Best of Fest on October 6th will be indoors and features the gems of participating wineries portfolios to sip, swirl and savor. Tickets for this event are limited as only 90+ point ratings, reserve bottles, and high price points make the cut for this event.
